“I've Seen Interstellar Four Times, Did Not Understand A Thing;” Says Dhyan Sreenivasan

Director and actor Dhyan Srinivasan have an interesting comment about the pitfalls he falls into to playing an intellectual. Dhyan says that he has often had to hold back after watching some movies, saying that he liked movies that he didn't like.

 
He was speaking in an interview given to Club FM. Dhyan said that he would not understand if he watched many English films and he understood some films after watching them many times. “I had no interest in the medium of cinema. Even going to see a normal movie is done after two pegs. After showing the name of the producer and distributor, I will sleep. Then when some song comes on, I wake up in shock and will sleep again. This was even my way of watching movies.
 
That's all I enjoy. I used to go and watch some Tamil films. I have never seen any cult films. I used to take the list of top 250 movies on IMDb and by heart it. If anyone asks, you can tell. I learned the names of many actors. If you ask more about it, you will get it. I did not understand a single thing after watching this movie called Inception. What was his name? Nolan. Because generally, I can't understand English just by watching the movie.
 
I wonder what their problem is (laughter). That's when this entire inception comes down. I don't understand anything but the people with me understand everything. Shame on me if I don't understand. I've seen Interstellar four times and did not understand a thing. Think about the state of not understanding after watching the movie. If someone asks if I've seen a Martin Scorsese movie, I'll slowly Google it. This is the situation. We should conduct a study for scams as well. Working well (laughter);” said Dhyan Srinivasan.
